I can answer most questions about studying physics in college and graduate school; questions about condensed matter physics; x-ray physics; synchrotron radiation; and general and modern physics. I can also answer questions about careers in academia.
Professor of physics for 30 years at Illinois Institute of Technology. Academic adviser for undergraduates and graduate students. I have served on university promotion and tenure committees, search committees for Deans and Department Chairs. I have also been an Associate Department Chair and an Associate Dean. I have 34 years experience in materials science research and I have been responsible for building and now managing a User facility at the Advanced Photon Source.

Physics, and science in general has been a lifelong passion for me. I particularly enjoy understanding how Nature works and how to describe it.
There are always new things to learn in science and specifically new, young scientists to mentor. I especially enjoy working with students at all levels, undergraduates to graduate students.
Physics is an excellent starting point for many different careers. What you learn as a physicist translates to many disciplines and careers.

Aishwarya: Let me present an analogy. If we define birds as living animals with feathers, beaks, and wings, why do we have names for individual kinds of birds. Swans, gees, swallows, penguins, and
You really need to formulate your question more carefully. It seems to me that you are simply repeating the same question again. I do not see how I can answer it any differently than what I have already
Hi Apsara: Matter is the technical term for protons, neutrons, electrons and everything made up of them. This includes gases, liquids and all solids as well as all forms of life. Of course we have
Dear Apsara: Unfortunately, your question is not very clear. Yes, matter has mass and occupies space but it is not everything that is around us. Light is not matter and it clearly exists as an aspect
Hi Abhishek: Yes, it is possible but it will be a challenge. If possible you should try to take as many physics courses as possible. This may not be an option in India but if you can, this will help
